Nelly Furtado: Everyone Needs to Be Educated About Photoshop

After years of playing the celebrity body insecurity game, singer Nelly Furtado has stepped off the pressure-filled treadmill and found body acceptance. Now she's passing some on to her daughter.

In a new interview, Nelly says that she spent years scrutinizing red carpet pictures of herself and feeling like she needed to work out aggressively for every photo shoot or public appearance. "Over the past four years I've been on something of a journey about my body," she revealed to the Evening Standard. "I used to be like lots of people in this business, 'I need to go on the treadmill for the next photo shoot.' No, you need to train your body for the health of your heart. Not for how you look..."

Nelly says she doesn't even look at pictures of herself anymore, choosing to focus her energies on what her body can do instead of stressing about her physical appearance: "I think body parts are powerful, so you've got to use them wisely. That's just how I was brought up. As I get older I've come into my body more and more and got more comfortable."

As a mom, Nelly is already taking steps to limit her daughter's exposure to media and teach her how to be a critical consumer--starting with a little Photoshop education. "I feel that it's really important that young men and women know about photo-shopping," she says. "They need to know everybody's airbrushed, squeezed, shrunk, no one fits into sample sizes - people get surgery to fit into those sizes, girls need to know that."
